Studies have shown that military veterans who have served overseas are 13% more likely to be involved in accidents at which they are at fault. Reports suggest that members of the military who have recently returned to the United States need time adjusting to domestic driving. In the military, they are required to be extremely alert and apprehensive. This could mean the difference between life and death for them. In the US, however, this type of driving is more dangerous than beneficial. Many veterans return to the US and drive the same way they did overseas. Studies show that recently returning veterans have a tendency to swerve out of their lanes at the sound of loud noise, which could possibly cause a collision with another vehicle. They also have a greater tendency to slam on brakes at the sight of potholes or debris in the road, as opposed to cautiously going around it.
